The ngā toi Māori strategy Te Hā o ngā Toi has been developed after close scrutiny of Creative New Zealand’s current work and a period of engagement with ngā toi Māori artists and practitioners. The aim was to gain a deeper understanding of the wider arts and cultural funding sector’s interest in, and contribution to, ngā toi Māori. Both of these perspectives showed that to enhance ngā toi Māori there is a need to:
• join with others and work collaboratively to create a system to better support ngā toi Māori
• effect change by:
o supporting ngā toi Māori artists and practitioners to better develop their practice and careers
o increasing opportunities for the public to engage with ngā toi Māori
o supporting the ngā toi Māori sector so they can better connect with the wider arts sector and more New Zealanders.
